The Wind - Guitar Lesson
Songs & Artists - Cat Stevens

Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members Cat Stevens frequently comes up with short ideas that are very cool and fun to play. *The Wind*is a good example of one of these. It is nothing more than a two-measure fingerpicked phrase with a few chords in the key of D. The picking uses the mono bass style and the strumming section has some unusual time changes. All of this adds up to a short but challenging song.

Thanks for another great lesson Neil! I might actually rate this an easier '4' for a couple of reasons. First, the opening harmonic intro is really difficult, but the song is perfectly fine without it. I would hate for someone to get discouraged and bail on the song just because of that! (My fingers just can't make the reach.) Secondly, what a *great* song for gaining confidence on a little picking pattern -- just two measures long, mono bass, and a nice starter for reading the TAB notation for those new to it and maybe intimidated by it. The only thing missing here (and for me the hardest part): laying on those vocal "Nevers" on top of the odd 5/4 and 6/4 sections. I'll just have top go back to the record for it!written by alberts, April 04, 2014
